Sarah grew up in Norristown, Pennsylvania just outside of Philadelphia (Home of the Super Bowl LII Champions!) and moved to Portland to complete her college degree. Sarah holds a Bachelors Degree in Child & Family Studies from Portland State University. Following five years as a teacher in a certified family child care home, Sarah sought out to open her own Preschool with the support of her Husband Bendrea!


Working with children has always been a passion of Sarah's. She believes in collaborating with parents and families to ensure that each child's first experience at school is a valuable one. She believes it's our responsibility to nurture each child's innate curiosity and provide exciting and dynamic experiences to encourage the growth of life-long learners!  


Ben Andrews

Owner & Provider of WFP3

Bendrea was born and raised in Portland OR. He obtained his Bachelors Degree from Full Sail University in Music Business Science. He has always been a teacher at heart working with youth at a young age leading into his first job at Helensview High School as a Music Instructor. 


Children are his passion along side of his wife Sarah, and they make an amazing team helping contribute to life time learners!

He named the school after his favorite proverb: give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day, teach a man to fish and he'll eat for his entire life. He hopes that the lessons the children learn at WFP help them for their whole lives.

Brandy Lee

Provider of WFP4

Brandy is an Oregon Native who comes to the Woodenfish Family after being a nanny and caregiver for the past few years. 

Creating a love for learning through curiosity and interest is something Brandy is passionate about. She believes the foundation to a child's future in education starts by cultivating their natural curiosity. She feels a child who wants to learn is more likely to seek knowledge out in their future.

When she is not acting silly with the kids, she is often reading and utilizing her love of learning. She enjoys museums, road trips, playing with her dogs, and being out in nature!

Abigail Jones

Substitute Provider (WFP)

Abigail is originally from Oregon City, Oregon and moved to Portland in the Summer of 2021. Her passion for childcare rooted from helping her mom out with their In-Home Daycare when she was younger. She’s been a nanny for several years and has a lot of experience from different kinds of backgrounds. 

Two of Abby’s favorite things about working with children are watching them learn and grow. Every child is different and she loves how she can connect with them all differently, as well. 

When Abigail isn’t working- she likes to enjoy her free time by spending time with her friends and family. She loves the outdoors; the beach, hiking, road trips with scenery, traveling and swimming.
